Liverpool is a city built on it’s Maritime Heritage and world trade influence. Liverpool’s waterfront became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2004, centred around Liverpool as a Maritime Mercantile city and this reflects the city’s significance as a commercial port at the time of Britain’s greatest influence.

The World Heritage Site stretches along the waterfront from Albert Dock, through to the Pier Head and up to Stanley Dock, and then up through the historic commercial districts, the RopeWalks area to end at St George’s Quarter.​​



Formed in 1960, the love really does live on and from far and wide, fans descend on the city to get a taste of the foremost influential rock band of all time. Ye Cracke may not look much from the outside, but this quaint old pub is proudly recognised as a once favourite spot of John Lennon. 

After soaking up the history of the boozer, take a seat (if you can) in its bustling beer garden. An annual event, International Beatle week Festival celebrates the band across a variety of venues, including all day and night live music in the Cavern Club and an Annual Convention with guest speakers and masses of memorabilia.
